SHO Licence de-coupling from SHR
Request SHO Product Marketing team to explain the licensing de-coupling of SHO and SHR please
Technically, SHO hides the SHR and BO in SHO 9.1. Also SHR license is no longer needed for SHO. Suresh can explain in details
P.S. This thread has been moved from Systems Management (OpenView-OP Mgmt) Support and News Forum to Application Performance Mgnt (BAC / BSM).

Some customers, who wanted the SHO's optimization capabilities, but who already have an alternate reporting solution found this to be a less than desirable situation.
SHO uses the same collection mechanism that powers SHR, and therefore, SHR SW product still needs to be installed. With SHR/SHO 9.1, however, the user can simply install an SHO license on the system, and SHR will recognize the SHO license. The SHR's reporting functionality will not work in such cases. Obviously, if the SHR license is added later, the reporting functionality will be activated.
Customers that already have both the licenses (and new customers that purchase both the products) will see no changes to the behavior of the product - both products will function with full functionality.
